Per Circuit Court Judge Tim Boyle, Corey Curtis may have a right to life (along with liberty and the pursuit of happiness), but he doesn’t have the right to create any more life.
The Wisconsin man, who has fathered nine children with six women, was ordered yesterday to cease procreating until he can support his numerous offspring.
At Curtis’s sentencing yesterday for bail jumping and failure to pay child support, Circuit Court Judge Tim Boyle told the 44-year-old Racine man that his frequent breeding was to be curbed as a condition of his three-year probation term.
Curtis owes about $90,000 total in back child support and interest to the mothers of his children. Pictured in the above mug shot, Curtis will have to wipe out that debt before he can add heir number ten, ruled Boyle.
…Previously, a Kentucky judge ordered a deadbeat dad (12 children with 11 women) to refrain from having sex in an attempt to keep him from adding a 13th dependent. The country’s most famous deadbeat dad, Tennessean Desmond Hatchett, has fathered more than 20 children (with 11 women). But Hatchett’s procreation rate has slowed significantly over the past 40 months due to the convicted felon’s status as a ward of state’s Department of Correction.
Having to rely on the state to pay for your kids is almost as bad as not paying your child support. So, why stop with deadbeat dads? How about we add welfare moms to the list, too? Although it’s not the business of the state to tell people how many kids they should have, it becomes the state’s business if it’s asked to pay for them. If we’re going down this road, let’s go all the way.
